SHANKAR-JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s…Song No. 6
———————————————
The mid 50s was a period when one could see the deep impact of the Nehruvian socialism on the film that were made. Great film makers like Mehboob Khan, B R Chopra and Raj Kapoor tried to support Nehru and Gandhian philosophies through their films. Being great artists, they combine socialism with entertainment in a skillful way. Films like Naya Daur, Mother India, Jagte Raho, Phir subah hogi, Do bigha Zameen,Boot polish,Ab dilli door nahin etc and later on films like Son of India and Naya Kanoon etc clearly indicated Socialism.

Good intentions are always the undoing. I am sure you would have also experienced this. मेरे साथ तो ये बहुत होता है. Take the case of this series itself.  The second song is being posted today.  When I initiated this series on 30th September with the song “Nigaahon Se Chhup Kar Kahaan Jaaiyega”, I had all the intentions to post one song at least every other day if not every day.  The available list of songs is all identified.  And see, it is the 11th day now that the second post is coming on.  क्या कहना है good intentions का.

Mukesh and his Composers – 5
————————————

Remembering Mukesh (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976) today (22 july 2015)on his 92nd birth anniversary.

The year 1958 was a turning point in the singing career of Mukesh. Though he had started his career nearly two decades back in 1940 and had some remarkable hits in late 40’s and early 50’s, his foray into acting-singing in the early fifties had some disastrous consequences which in my view affected his whole career in some way or the other. The first three posts in this series clearly show that his songs with those composers stopped sometime after 1949-50. And then there are huge gaps before he was called again by the same composers.

When ‘Anand’ was released in theatres in 1970, I was still in school. I remember I did not get a chance to see this film on the big screen in the first run.  It would be later re runs that I got to see this film.  Being still not very involved with cinema and music, the best fare for us used to be what we could see on Doordarshan.  Rather, whatever was telecast on Doordarshan was always the quality stuff in my mind.  So having watched films like ‘Sikander’ (1941) and ‘Roti’ (1942) and ’Baazi’ (1951) on TV, the micro mind of mine carried them as benchmarks and anything that we would see on posters and billboards going to and from school, would be just so so.  I remember, when we came to know about this film ‘Anand’, the names Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan did not mean much to us.  Rajesh Khanna, to some extent, as we had all heard the “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani Kab Aayegi Tu” that became popular the year earlier.

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations ––44 (Post number 9998)

How do you feel when a family member achieves something spectacular? Atul is my family, not only as a fellow blogger, but also because both of us started our professional career at the same Institute. This was a small, beautiful, self-contained place, tucked away in a town back of beyond, at the foothills of a hill (which was literally called पहाड़ी). This Institute was a British creation in 1927, with exceptional facilities thrown in: indoor swimming pool, indoor badminton court, squash court, tennis courts, football field, table tennis, billiards table, lounge, dark room for photography (the world was not digital then), and a huge golf course just outside the complex. Four years of our most exciting young days in this ambience, the life-style, and the traditions created a strong life-long bond with the Institute, and among the alumni. As I entered a few years earlier, I am especially delighted by the awesome achievement of my younger brother, The Incomparable Atul. As he completes the magical number of 10,000 posts I convey my heartiest congratulations to him and all the regular contributors who have made it possible.

And so wrote the scribe
Milte Hi Nazar Tum Se
Hum Ho Gaye Deewaane

A dazzling flash of lightning, and a sudden pause. As the heartbeats rapidly quicken, and the vocal chords freeze for a while. The expressions become immobile, and the activity of thoughts quickly peters down to nothing. The sensations subside, and the world around seems as if to have disappeared. Yes, sometimes it happens so, maybe once in a lifetime (and maybe more, for a fortunate few ;).

Since today morning there has been a flurry of activity, as the post for Burman Dada birth anniversary took me by surprise. Our anniversary list posts this event on the 10th of this month, and so I was a little surprised to see the song “Dil Mera Udaa Jaaye”, from the 1976 film ‘Arjun Pandit’ posted today morning announcing the dual anniversary of Burman Da and Majrooh Sb together.

I was in school when the songs of this film hit the radio waves. The film apparently made almost no impact, for I did not register its name or other details ever. And it was only after joining Song-a-Day team, that I came to know about the details of this film, even its name. A while back I had posted one song from this film – “Ye Dil Nasheen Nazaare Karte Hain Kya Ishaare”, and that was when I searched for and found the details of this film. And it was then that I realized that three of the new favorites (referring to the time I was in school) are all from the same film ‘Pyaase Dil’ (1974). (Ah yes, Prakash ji, after reading your comment, I thought more wait is not good to get this third song in :) ).

I have been going through the biographies and profiles of some of the well known Urdu poets – Mirza Ghalib, Ibrahim Zauq, Mir Taqi Mir, Daagh Dehlvi, Majaz Lucknawi, Firaq Gorakhpuri, Josh Malihabadi, Jigar Moradabadi etc. Most of them had faced prolonged pains and sufferings due to certain events that had happened in their lives. It is said that shaayars’ personal pains and sufferings bring the best shaayaris as these are born out of their first hand experiences. The lovers of ghazals still remember the poignant and melancholic ghazals of Ghalib, Mir, Firaq, Jigar etc.
